Entrepreneur Work Permits

If you want to work in Canada, you can apply for an open work permit before entering Canada or obtain an offer of employment from a Canadian employer.

Your employer may need to obtain a positive Labour Market Impact Assessment from Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC). A positive LMIA is an authorization from ESDC that the employer can hire a foreign worker for a particular position and for the duration specified on the Labour Market Impact Assessment.
